Denmark to Celebrate 175th Anniversary of Constitution with Grand Ceremony

On June 5, 2024, Denmark will celebrate the 175th anniversary of the constitution with great pomp and circumstance. The day will be commemorated with a festive service at Holmens Church, followed by an official celebration in the Landsting Hall at Christiansborg Palace. This historic jubilee will be celebrated in the presence of King Frederik and Queen Mary, along with other members of the royal family. The Danish Parliament, which is organizing the event, has announced that the day will begin with a service where the country’s spiritual leaders will reflect on the significance of the constitution and its role in modern Danish society.

Following the service, the festivities will continue at Christiansborg Palace, with speeches from several high-ranking officials, including the Speaker of the Danish Parliament Søren Gade, Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen, and the President of the Supreme Court Jens Peter Christensen. The constitution, signed by King Frederik VII on June 5, 1849, is a cornerstone of Danish democracy and the rule of law. This day is not just a celebration of a historical event, but also a reminder of the values and principles that are still fundamental to Danish society.

The celebration will also feature various musical performances reflecting the cultural richness and historical depth of Denmark. Members of Parliament and other representatives of official Denmark will be present to honor this significant day. This anniversary offers a unique opportunity to reflect on the past, acknowledge the present, and inspire the future with hope and renewed commitment to the democratic ideals that the constitution represents.
